Carefully removed all of the screws to get to the compartment which housed the broken circular door that seals the ice compartment after ice has been delivered via the water fountain on the front of the refrigerator. Disconnected the wire harnesses (labeled as I went) and pulled the unit off of the fridge. It would probably be wise to have shut the power to the fridge off, although I did not. The problem was that the circular door that snaps back into place after delivering ice had severed one of the tabs that holds it in place. I discarded the old door and slipped the new door into place. There is an electromagnetic plunger that is responsible for the door opening when ice is being delivered (the system is magnetized and it draws the plunger in, thereby opening the door) and then snaps back into place once the ice button is released. I found the best way to get this back into place was to put the door (with its harness) into the "open" position and then gently force the plunger into place. Put everything together and all was good.
